I have heard from teamates who have this bat that when they bought it at the store all the bats weights felt different. Is there a way i can buy it here and know the exact weight of the bat i am buying?

For instance,a 29 inch bat, could be as light as 24 ounces or as heavy 26 ounces. The bats aren't marked with the exact weights.
My son just purchased athe 225YB Louisville Slugger wooden bat that says powerized next to the emblem It is the 30 inch bat. He really would like to know whose autograph is on the bat. It is not a very clear autograph He It says GRAND SLAM then the autograph and then the words YOUTH BASEBALL He would really like to know if possible what people signed this particular bat. We appreciate your help with this.
There are various player signatures on all the Louisville Slugger 225YB youth bats. The most common are Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Evan Longoria, Dustin Pedroia and Manny Ramirez. Manny Ramirez and Alex Rodriguez's signatures are clear as day and easily identifiable. Derek Jeter's may be a little sloppy with several big loops, but you should be able to recognize the cursive "D" and "J" in his name. Dustin Pedroia's is not very legible, but it has a large "D" followed by what looks like a lowercase "t" then a uppercase "P". Evan Longoria's has an obvious "E" at the beginning and a "#3" engraved under the signature. I hope this helps.
